Common canvas formats

The system of canvas formats that we know to this day, arises in France in the nineteenth century in order to facilitate the large-scale production of canvases.

Each canvas format has a letter:

  • F: used for portraits or figures. They are usually the most requested because their measurements are very versatile, so you do not really know what you want to capture, this canvas is suitable for you.
  • Q: Canvases with the letter P are just right for landscapes and backgrounds. They are more elongated than those designed for figures or portraits.
  • M: they are the most elongated and are used for those landscapes where the horizon has great importance.

NFT art

Bitcon NFT

These acronyms stand for Non-Fungible Token or Non-Fungible Token. This is a computer representation unit that maintains its value and acquires specific code through blockchains.

Currently, NFTs are sweeping the art world, to cite a few examples, Nyan Cat created a meme that sold for $ 600.00. And musician Grimes sold some videos for nearly $6 million.

NFT art has a particularity: it does not exist in the physical world but remains in the mainstream.

NFT technology allows you to create a unique signature and a digital certificate that authenticates the authenticity of the works. Whether it is the file of an image, a text, even a tweet as well as other digital formats.

Thanks to this technological advance, artists, and creatives can create certificates of authenticity of their works in digital format and thus be able to continue financing their work or production.

The NFT format also adds value to digital art, since there are works and pieces that have gained value thanks to their exclusivity and cannot be replicated.
